Just north of Chicago, IL lies a gem of a private club near the coast of Lake Michigan. Built in 1924, the Charles Alison design is rich with history. What was once lush farm land is now a pristine parkland-style golf course. The club has served as a retreat for Chicago’s elite since before World War II. Host of two USGA Mid-Amateur Championships and one US Amateur Championship, Knollwood has also been an exemplary site for tournament golf. Tree-lined fairways and large greenside bunkers are signatures of the old school layout.
